Most business owners give little thought to the technology they use. But to Reese Ormand, technology is an all-consuming passion. His mission is to change the way people perceive and interact with their technology – from a frustrating, necessary evil to a productive source of solutions that can enhance every area of their lives.
Reese is CEO of Techvera, one of Denton’s fastest growing technology firms. He literally grew up in the business having started in 2001 as a technician for Geek on Wheels, a computer repair shop founded by his father.
After nine years behind the repair bench and learning the ins and outs of the business, Reese bought the company and put his own unique spin on it. He assembled a team of technology experts, reinvented its business model, quadrupled revenue, and built a name in the industry in the process.
In 2016, Reese re-branded Geeks on Wheels as Techvera to better align with the firm’s new business model and vision for the future. Techvera now specializes in providing turn-key IT management to small businesses.
Instead of the old, reactive, break-fix “firefighting” method of computer repair, Techvera takes a proactive stance, giving its clients the freedom to disengage from their technology challenges and focus on what actually matters – running their businesses.
Techvera provides managed IT services, backup and disaster recover, streamlined communications, cloud and mobility solutions, consulting and, of course, computer repair.
Reese holds a Bachelor of Business Administration in Management Information Systems degree from The University of Texas at Austin – McCombs School of Business.
